  • One of the anti cannabis folks of Fortuna is a hypocrite and a thief. Bill Thorington is a complete POS! If you tried to open a dispensary and fought the neighbors to do so, you should not be able to publicly speak against cannabis. What a foul human being. Low life scum this guy is.

    • Then Stole the Collective through corporate law loopholes, liquidated the assets and the property. literally sold off all the equipment to the restaurant down to the floors. robbed his partners of all liquid assets and walked away. Snitched on his partners who disagreed with his decisions and had them raided(which amounted to nothing as they were in compliance at the time), all the while touting cannabis laws and freedoms and lobbying the board and state politicians to further his money making collective.
      we’ve got to remember who this thief is, he was also Carol Bruno and Tom Dimmicks accountant for reggae rising event which failed and went under. Carol and Tom were blamed for the huge losses and unpaid bills. Bill Thorington walked away clean from that as well with plenty of money in the bank while his employers were left holding the empty bag.
      its only a matter of time before bill does it again to someone else. now hes a anti cannabis member of the fortuna community. I wonder if City of Fortuna has ever hired his consulting firm? they are experts now in both pro and anti cannabis politics. Bill is a snake.

      • I was told by an attorney, that his name has come up more than once. He completely shit on his partners who carried his fat ass. How he sleeps at night is beyond me. He got lucky that one of his partners, who was an enforcer back in the day didn’t apply some old school justice on his skull.

  • u mean fortucky?lol

  • Oh good! keep it clandestine

    It’s sunny and it’s friendly… to the black market .

  • The language of this headline suggests a dangerous veering toward “hipster” blogger/free newspaper dialect. I hope you will curtail this excursion.
